Awakening by Christy Dorrity


Awakening: Book One of The Geis was released this September.

“AWAKENING is a wonder and a delight. Christy Dorrity is a talent to watch!”
- DAVID FARLAND, New York Times bestselling author of Nightingale

"Dorrity invites her readers to a céilí that will quicken the pulse of anyone with Ireland in their blood! AWAKENING will draw you deep into the mysteries of the Celtic worldview—and leave you wanting more of McKayla and her fascinating Aunt Avril!"
- KERSTEN HAMILTON, author of Tyger Tyger and the Goblin Wars books

"I thoroughly enjoyed AWAKENING, a captivating and unique debut novel that creatively integrates Irish dance."
- CHRIS NAISH, Riverdance member and Creative Director of Fusion Fighters Irish dancers.


. . . .because some Celtic stories won’t be contained in myth. 

A little magic has always run in sixteen-year-old McKayla McCleery's family—at least that’s what she’s been told. McKayla’s eccentric Aunt Avril travels the world as a clairvoyant for the FBI, and her mother can make amazing delicacies out of the most basic of ingredients. But McKayla doesn't think for a second that the magic is real—it’s just good storytelling. Besides, McKayla doesn’t need magic. She just moved to beautiful Star Valley, Wyoming, and already she has an amazing best friend, a solo in her upcoming ballet recital, and the gorgeous guy in her physics class keeps looking her way.


When an unexpected fascination with Irish dance leads McKayla to seek instruction from the mute, crippled, janitor at her high school, she learns that her family is not the only one with unexplained abilities.


After Aunt Avril comes to the valley in pursuit of the supernatural killer she has been chasing her entire career, people in the valley begin disappearing, and the lives of those McKayla holds most dear are threatened. When an ancient curse, known as a geis, awakens powers that defy explanation, McKayla is forced to come to terms with what is real and what is fantasy. A thrilling first novel, Awakening is a gripping contemporary fantasy rife with magic, romance, and mystery.
